GUEST,silver Do you like 'Little Boxes'? (202* d) RE: Do you like 'Little Boxes'? 05 Apr 16

I have loved "Little Boxes" from first hearing - it was the first time I heard Pete Seeger, and indeed my introduction to American folk music. The bounce and good humour in Pete's voice on that record is priceless,

Thanks, M.Ted, for the link to "There's a Pawnshop..." Like that one,too. Incidentally, Swedish entertainer and satirist Karl Gerhard (1891-1964) used that tune for his song "En katt ibland hermelinerna" (A Cat among the Ermines) in 1955. Also rather sneery towards certain haughty ladies. I have always wondered why it reminded me of "Little Boxes".
